Poole's beach hut waiting list will re-open again today, having been closed for seven years. The borough council are also proposing to build 79 new huts along the beach throughout the next two years.
Councillor Judy Butt, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Public Engagement and Participation, Borough of Poole, said: "Being able to invite our residents to join the waiting list for a beach hut at one of Poole's fantastic beaches is long overdue.
"Poole's beaches are one of our biggest assets and while we cannot offer people a beach hut immediately, I am delighted to be able to reopen the waiting list, after seven years this is really is a great step forward."
A beach hut in Mudeford in Dorset is up for sale. The hut sleeps four, has no running water and boasts stunning views of the sea. An interesting listing... but what is surprising is that it will cost a buyer £200,000 pounds. Our reporter Kerry Swain went for a viewing.
The interviewees are: Sarah Litchfield, beach hut owner; and Neil Chalmers, Estate agent.
Today's the last day for people in Poole to have their say on proposed changes to beach hut lettings. A public consultation ends today. Plans include introducing a maximum letting period of five years or ten years for a higher fee.
